One Million Backpacks
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority will promote the learning process by providing substantial support to students through AKA One Million Backpacks℠. Members will donate and distribute one million backpacks and related school supplies to students over a four year period.
The Pasadena Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha will support this program by collecting and distributing 1,000 backpacks to students in our local community. We’re so excited to partner with Sydney Paige® to bring quality backpacks and school supplies to students in Northwest Pasadena. The mission of Sydney Paige® is to promote the importance of education and enrich the life of a child, while empowering those more fortunate to GIVE BACK. For every product they sell, another is donated to a student in need, with the goal of giving under-served children the tools and confidence they need to learn and thrive in school.
Help us reach our goal of donating 1000 backpacks + school supplies to local children in Pasadena!! Don’t need a backpack? No problem! You can also simply DONATE ONLY.
